Telle Smith breaks leg

Tyler "Telle" Smith, vocalist of Arizona metalcore band The Word Alive, suffered a compound fracture of his tibia while performing in Los Angeles, CA this week. Smith had this to say:

"Last night while closing our show in LA with Trapped, I had a fall in the balcony and suffered a compound fracture of my tibia. Luckily doctors were able to use a technique to prevent the need for surgery (at least for now) to allow me to continue on with the tour. I'll be in a chair the remainder of the tour and recovery in a cast for the rest of the year so come out and give TWA all of the energy you can! See you guys soon, thank you!"

A broken leg is nothing. How about you carry Sheetrock every day for 10 years and see what kind of chronic back pain you have. Is your broken leg bullshit gonna cause you to start getting legit oxys from the dr? You gonna fruitlessly visit chiropractors for years? Your broken leg ain't nothing compared to what real men deal with every day

^ Nice gatekeeping bro. Why not get a real job? You must be showing up high or drunk every day to never get promoted. You deserve your life. You suck. Enjoy your sheetrock jerk.

^^^ To the karma guy. If you know so much about karma then you would know how bad it is to talk shit about someone. Tyler and the rest of the band are doing their best every day to spread a positive message. Only negative nancies like you have an issue with it. I've never heard them once insult someone out of anger. But they will tell the truth. Maybe they were trying to tell you they had seen your girlfriend with many other guys before. Don't reject something before thinking.

If someone is a homosexual then the correct term is the word Gay. Why is that an insult?

No, I'll listen to the music I want. You can't tell me what is real metal. Go ahead list some bands. I guarantee they are either punk/hardcore bands or they are homosexual hair metal bands. Nothing you listen to is worth shit except in your little liberal echo chamber.

We men of the roofing industry don't get days off. I break my leg and I get right in that laser. I got mouths to feed and shingle to nail. Tell you what I don't need surgery either and I ain't getting on no goddamn computer taking selfies in the hospital. I'm throwing some duct tape on it and getting on with my life. pssy
